We are off on a road trip to our home town. Going home to celebrate my sweet grandson's first birthday! Wow! Time went by so fast! We are also visiting with my parents, my sweet friends, and our home church. Our church always holds a Harvest Festival as an alternative to Halloween. It is used as an outreach. My kids are excited to see their friends and they have some cute costumes to wear. This will be the first year that they are not working the booths, participating in the skits and playing in the band. That will be bitter sweet.
I have good and bad days with this move. It has been so hard to be pulled away from my life at home. I tell my husband that now, I can move anywhere. I have no strings attached here! : ) Of course, that is now!
Have a blessed weekend and in everything keep Jesus first!

Here they are... the goof balls! I decided to take some school pictures. The kids were being goof balls and acting silly.
We are beginning our 8th week of school. Yes, and I am just now getting around to getting this post out. My boy is in 11th grade and my girlie girl is in 7th.
This year I changed it up a bit for my boy.
We are enrolled in the College Plus program. He will be getting his basic college classes through CLEP testing out of the way and also get high school credit. Those classes are Analyzing and Interpreting Literature, Sociology, and Biology 2 for the first semester and more for second semester.
Math, we will be using Chalk Dust Algebra 2.
Bible, we are using NKJV and Thinking Like a Christian. As well as many books to encourage a deeper walk with Jesus. Also, College Plus has a great program called Life Purpose Training for students to stay focused on God during high school and college.
My girlie girl is plugging away in 7th grade.
We will continue on with Sonlight for History, Literature and Read Alouds. I have always loved this program and I always seem to go back to it. I always think of doing something different but my heart always go back.
Math- Chalk Dust Pre-Algebra
Science- Apologia General Science
Bible- Bright Lights
Last week was busy with family in town. We were off a little but this week I am determined to be back on track.

We went to the zoo over the weekend. We ended up getting a zoo membership. I have big dreams of taking my girlie girl there during the week and doing a nature journal for science and art. Sounds like fun. Now I just have to follow through and do it.
My grand kids are in town for the week. We will be doing some site seeing and checking out the things to do in our area.
